You are a good person with good intentions, and you do your level best to meet the needs of those around you. Isn't that the right thing to do? How can being a good person end up feeling so bad? Most of the time you are overwhelmed, over-responsible, and exhausted. It can feel like the people around you expect so much of you that you have nothing left for yourself. You might even feel hopeless or powerless to improve your relationships or circumstances - especially when painful patterns repeat.
